I also note that many of todays riders are super thin. That is relatively recent. In the 80's and before that riders were not fat but thicker and more normal looking. There were exceptions of course. Joop was pretty thin and Hampsten. Lemond and Hinault? Not so much. But then Hinault had the strong enough to slug protesters now and then. Could you imagine Andy Schleck getting in the face of a protester like that today?

Unfortunately, I think that the 3dubs will always be filled with people accusing good performances of being doped (maybe rightly so). The double sided sward there is that if you win, you are doped, but if you don't win, you are washed up, overpaid, overrated...damned either way.
